the patient protection affordable care act into the law, president obama has failed to execute but faithfully. the president has unilaterally taken the taxpayers dollars and made them available in favor to them from the authorized purposes towards the purposes for which no congress has ever appropriated funds. he has repeatedly written the statute to spend taxpayer dollars that no law authorizes him to spend and they expressly forbid him. he's unilaterally issued blanket waivers and requirements that doesn't authorize him to wave intand at the same time declineo collect taxes that they order him to collect and he's unilaterally rewritten the statute to impose williams in texas that the ppca and billions of dollars in debt that the statute forbids him to incur. he's unilaterally rewritten to allow health insurance products the statute expressly for bids and he has encouraged the consumers, insurers and state officials to violate the law that he himself and acted and he's taking the steps for the purpose of stalling the action by the people's representatives in congress. president obama blank u
the process of getting the law, on obama care, this was passed in a unique situation where you know, i've see in mr. cannon's testimony, especially probably the perfect citation. i see in your testimony, writes, president obama's unfaithfulness to the ppaca is so wanton, it is no longer accurate to say that patient protection and affordable care act is, quote, the law of the land. and you know, it is kind of ironic because some of my colleagues, about 53 of us, have signed on to the house resolution stating that we believe that obamacare has yet to be the law of the land because it violated origination clause of the u.s. constitution when it was passed. we don't talk about that a great deal but it, is significant because the origination clause which was vital to the constitution ever coming into existence in the first place, it was, the, the critical, negotiation that took place to allow the cons to exist. -- constitution to exist. requires al bills for raising revenue originate in the house. incident -- incidentally, mr. cannon, our colleague at tate cowritten an excellent piece laying out t
office. i lay out a consistent pattern whereby president obama has ignored and tried to rewrite for sins of the affordable care act. think the most egregious of these is the one where he has, he is implementing the law in a way such that he is taxing and burrowing in spending over the next 10 years. $700 billion that this congress never authorized. you may disagree with my interpretation of the law and i know mr. lazarus does but you and i and mr. lazarus would agree that if the president were trying to tax and borrow and spend 700 billion dollars without congressional authorization, that might be an impeachable offense. >> does anyone think the actions of the bush administration going into iraq without actual knowledge of weapons of mass destruction would have been an impeachable offense? mr. lazarus, you seem to be nodding. -- disregard the nod in front of the curtain. i was upset about that. it was a political decision that congress would have to make. >> the war powers issue does come closest for me for both president obama and president bush. the reason i do not think it rises to th
and their families have received insurance cancellation notices. do you think medicare advantage maybe obama cares next victim? and if so, what might beneficiaries in pennsylvania expect over the coming years in terms of plan choices, costs, forgone benefit offerings and provider networks? >> thank you, mr. chairman. indeed, i am concerned about the future of medicare advantage. as i said in my opening statement. the work we've done on the implications of aca cuts, for example, in pennsylvania would suggest that in 2014 there would be an average loss of benefit, beneficiary of about $2200, that this is about a 19% reduction in those benefits. and that we would see a decline in -- about 113,000 pennsylvanians. those numbers for 2014 are of concern, but i am more troubled by the trajectory over the succeeding five years of the full cuts under the affordable care act as to whether medicare advantage will remain a viable option within the medicare program and deliver the comprehensive benefits. i just want to echo the statements that we heard in many of the opening remarks. the medicare population is
of companies in that 40-plus, going to 50, wanting to go to 75, and under obama care, this arbitrary selection of 50 now defining a large corporation doesn't fit with the entrepreneurial spirit. so in the same, you know, what do you think, yes or no, do you think we should increase beyond 50 the number of ftes that would trigger the affordable care act? i don't know if it's 100 or 150, but do you believe that 50 is too low and stifles job creation, and, therefore, we as congress should increase it to a number higher than 50? >> i think the bright line test of a certain number of people is the wrong test. you need a facts and circumstances test on who has day-to-day control. if you increase it to 50, the same thing that happens beyond -- that happens at 50 will happen beyond 50, whether there's 75, 100, 150 or 500. >> ms. bogardos? >> as for the 50-employee rule, i agree increasing it would alleviate a number of issues, but there would have to be a change to the statute itself. >> mr. winstanley? >> i think the challenge comes in that every industry can't be put in the same box. i think in the

will see that finally out a pretty consistent whereby president obama has ignored and try to rewrite portions of the protection of the portal care act. and i think that the most egregious of these is the one where he has -- he's implementing it in a way such that he is taxing and borrowing and spending over the next ten years. $700 billion that congress never authorized. now he may disagree with my interpretation of the law. i know mr. lazarus does. i know that you and i and mr. lazarus would all agree that a president were trying to tax and borrow and spend them hundred billion dollars without authorization tha that may be impeachable. >> does anybody think that the actions of going into iraq without actual knowledge of weapons of mass destruction or anything else would have been an impeachable offense? esther lazarus, you seem to be nodding. >> this regard the nod. i was very upset about that whether it is an impeachable and the decision congress would have to make. mr. turley? >> the issue does come closest for both president obama and president bush created the reason i do not th
tuesday that in order to get a buy in from republicans, president obama endorsed adopted health care model first proposed by the heritage foundation. the individual mandate. he spoke at the forum hosted by georgetown university. here is a little of what he said. i had many conversations with him and others over those early stages. i'll never forget as he was contemplating what model he would use, there was a lot of pressure in his party going back to this question about government to say you know what, what we ought to have is a single-payer system. medicare for all. that's what we need. medicare for all. a single-payer system like a lot other industrialized countries especially europe. you know what his answer was? i'm going take the heritage foundation proposal they came up with in 1993 and we'll use that as the model and we'll use that as the basis for legislation. because i want to see if we can find it bipartisan. they said, okay, we'll accept that. when you offer the exchange there ought to be a public option. you ought to be able to go every state and pick medicare for all, if that'

somebody needs to be held accountable for health care.gov. democrats are calling on the administration, the closest allies are calling on the administration. you need to fire someone. what is it like to be a cabinet secretary in the obama administration? >> guest: as glen's reporting indicates, it's a signup for the duty is almost by definition accept a certain amount of frustration and disappointment. and particularly frustration and disappointment if you were one of the cab net officers that believed the storyline that president obama worked very hard. it was going to be a team of rival that captivated by doris goodwin's book on lincoln. and he was talking in ways that made us think there might be a revival of cabinet-based government. if so, that would have been a departure from the trend the last 50 years which increasingly centralized it. it turned out he didn't have in mind a departure. in fact it's the most centralized in to my mind insulated west wing since the nixon years. and as we have
't care how many times or how hard ted cruz can hug barack obama, i don't think he could win the majority of the latino vote, the majority of the women vote, a fourth of the black vote in a blue state like new jersey. i want to win elections. that requires fielding candidates that can win. fielding candidates that fit the population needs, priorities of the places where they are running. a winning republican candidate with whom i agree part of the time is a hell of a lot better than a losing republican candidate with whom i agree all of the time. and because this is new hampshire, i want to make an aside here. kelly ayotte is a winning republican candidate. and she's an even better senator. she is thoughtful, she is courageous, she has brains, she has heart, she has guts. she worries about priorities in new hampshire, not republican primaries in new hampshire. and as ted cruz and the senate conservatives found out recently, do not tread on kelly ayotte. she bites back. if you ask me today what the biggest problem the party faces, i would say there are many issues. but the most harmful is

. a senior administration official in the current obama administration told us last week, he said i've been incredibly impressed by the judgment and care that you would expect from a great news organization. and, finally, a senior whitehall official at the heart of these stories on september 9, i have not seen anything you have published to date which is risked lives. so there are different views about this and i listened with respect to the give you have given, but i don't -- >> but you disagree with an? >> it's not that i disagree. it's impossible to assess because no one is give me specific evidence. >> the real criticism is that the information you contains the names of individual sector the officers and this has been sent around the world, sometimes pay for by "the guardian," and these names are of our security officers, people who were there to protect our country. that's what you damaged the country, because others who don't have security clearance have been able to read these names, know who they are, possibly know where they live. that is the damage that they allege you have done.
